Getting an injectable treatment isn’t as simple as hopping into a chair at the doctor’s office. Make sure you’ve got the following things covered beforehand: 1. Avoid vitamin E, St. John’s wort, ibuprofen, aspirin and other anti-inflammatories for 10 days to two weeks before your injections. This will reduce swelling and bruising. 2. If you are seeing a new physician, it’s important to notify your injector of the last time you had any injections, what was injected and specifically where. Not all injectables mix well, so be thorough. 3. Do not undergo injections if you are intoxicated or under the influence of any controlled substance. There is no such thing as a safe Botox party. 4. If you are prone to cold-sores, notify your doctor in advance. A prescription of anti-herpes medication can prevent a post-injection outbreak. 5. With the exception of Botox and collagen, don’t plan your treatment within just a few days of an important event. You may have visible swelling and brusing that not even a great concealer can hide.
